A Blast from Python Past

I had an interesting discussion with one of my son's friends at a neighborhood gathering over the holidays.

Kicking Chicago with R.

Like most Chicago football fans, I was pretty distraught after the Bears lost last Sunday's playoff game courtesy of a missed field goal at the end -- a kick that first hit the goalpost and then the crossbar before ultimately failing miserably. While most local fans were grief-stricken like me, some were irrationally inconsolable, demanding the scalp, and worse, of the…See More

"Richard -- Thanks for your comment. I worked extensively with SAS from 1980-2000. Indeed from 1985-1995, SAS was my go-to tool for data access, data munging, and data analysis. I was a pretty proficient SAS programmer, and I actually still…"
